Question about 2000 Renault 181

2 Answers

I have a renault megane 2000 model right hand drive, recently this problem popped up,the lights that would indicate what gear it Is in would disappear and I am unable to change gear from park to drive its as though the car is not switched on, I left it overnight and it returned to normal only to go again! Could this be a relay problem? Can someone shed some light on this? Because the electricians in Trinidad & Tobago are not renault savvy

So its an Auto, to take it out of park the brake pedal needs to be depressed. If the switch on the brake pedal is not working it will not release the electric lock. If you have big feet, its not uncommon that you have loosened a wire down in the footwell.
So check the brake pedal switch, easy to do as the brake lights light up to confirm its working!
It can also be the electric soloniod that is faulty, but not so common.
On the more gloomy side it could be a fault within the gearbox computer.
If you read the handbook it tells you how manually release it out of park.

SOURCE: My renault megane automatic is stuck in reverse and won't start

Hi all,
I have a 2002 Renault Megane 1.6 Convertible and experienced exactly the same fault. Needed a team effort but we found a very easy quick fix to this problem. If you take the plastic cover off from under the gear shifter, you will notice a release button covered by a rubber cover. Pressing this release button allows the gear shifter to move from its locked/jammed position. (This is not the fix but it helps with the fix).
If you are fortunate enough to have a 2nd person available, have them poke their head under the bonnet to watch the Gearbox cable move....while you are shifting the gear shifter inside the vehicle. Your partner will see that a cable with a plastic locking device (right hand side of the engine cover) has popped off the shifter for the transmission. Move the shifter until you can physically put the plastic locking device back on the shifter mechanism and your all good to go. No need for that new gearbox that you might have been quoted on!! An easy fix that I am surprised no mechanically minded professional/body in the world has volunteered the solution to. I wonder why????

Good luck!

Zigzag light on megane scenic dashboard comes on car revs high then low usually stalls then coming to a stop. 1998 renault megane scenic rt manual. thanks


this exact problem on a megane coupe is caused by a small air pipe that connects to a 2 inch wide black box that is located under the bonnet near the windscreen on the passangers side. the zigzag light indicates an electrical fault (in this case lack of compression and will affect your revs) if you find this pipe and it has snapped off. the reason for this may be that your engien is lose and moves. grab the engien with 2 hands and see if you can wobble it with allot of play. if so your engien mountings need replaceing. you may also experiance juddering in low gears
